No one, it seems, is safe from the physical and emotional wounds inflicted by the early twenty-first century. With his eye-opening human and social analysis, David Kegan helps us face up to this ancient anxiety by examining the psychological, political, and cultural aspects of human suffering. In Aristotle's Theory of Comedy, he provides a careful examination of the comic sensibility in Aristophanes' works. In The Human Condition, David Kegan reflects on the ability of artists to escape the social matrix that causes so much misery. In Redefining Difference, David Kegan explores how artists and intellectuals of all persuasions can offer a public vision of tomorrow that will help us manage our anxiety about our place in the world. Just as Aristotle first attempted to establish a sociology of comedy, David Kegan's books aim at a holistic account of the troubling times in which we live.

The Ancient Greek playwrights are the first of all the creative artists. Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, and Aristophanes, have left us the only complete examples of the art form from antiquity. Combined, the four playwrights constitute the antecedents of all drama, and in particular the tragedies and comedies that developed from them. In this important book, Kyle A. VanHoesen brings together the individual work of these four playwrights, as well as their major contribution, in his discussion of the elements that comprise the classical theater. Using quotations from the playwrights themselves, as well as eye-witness accounts, he illuminates the development of genre, style, form, and diction during this formative period. He demonstrates that the antecedents of the Greek drama have their earliest roots in the ancient Greek religion and that the actual development of these playwrights is an unbroken continuum from the religious oracle to the fully developed and classical comedy of Aristophanes 0b46394aab
